Will someone please explain to me how I can simultaneously feel like that was the longest summer of my life, and still feel like it ended too soon? September LITERALLY flew by and I am officially starting to think of how quickly the end of the year is approaching! (Gah! I’ve got to start thinking about Christmas gifts already!) 

But before I start worrying about reindeer and elf on the shelf, let’s properly address the month of October with the honor that it truly deserves. I’ve created this wallpaper as a tribute to my favorite author and the king of creep (P.S. if you haven’t seen IT, then you’re missing out!).

Happy August everyone! I'm not going to lie...this summer has been a rough one for me and I feel like I just haven't been able to catch a break. Usually summer is a time when my work flow lulls a bit, but June was my highest grossing month and in July I've been working through all those packages that were booked. That plus non-stop company at our house and whatever remnants of a personal life are left have made me really need to slow it down.

Summer is in full swing and the heat is here for July! Usually I slow down a bit during the summer, but this year for some reason I've been full to the brim with new branding projects and website designs (including this newly launched brand + website for Compass Advisors that we just wrapped up!). But don't worry, I would never forget about the free wallpaper design for the month -- and I'm totally loving this one.

How to Establish Trust On Your Website

How to Establish Trust On Your Website

When people visit your website there's always an end goal. An action you want them to perform, a product you want them to buy, some sort of next step you want them to take towards hiring you. But how do you get people to do these things? A big part of getting your visitors to do you what you want is by establishing trust with them so that they are willing to invest in you. People want to invest their money in credible products and services, they want to know that they can trust you with their money. Everything that you do on your website contributes to this in some way, but here a few things you can implement right away to start building that trust with your users.

Hold on to your butts...for the new FREE wallpaper design for June featuring a super fun dinosaur pattern! A few weeks ago my sister-in-law said she was redecorating my nephew's room with a dinosaur theme and I jumped at the chance to practice my illustration skill to make him some new wall art. And then I decided that I loved these little dudes so much that I wanted to look at them all month. So I made a cute little pattern with them and the rest is (pre)history...hah. Anyway, I hope this brings you as many giggles as it has brought me. Plaster these buddies on all your digital screens and please share + enjoy!

P.S. My favorite dinosaur is the iguanodon, in case you were wondering.

City Pop | Specialty Label Designs

City Pop is a gourmet popcorn company with brick and mortar shops in Denver + the surrounding areas (including in Winter Park, which I saw when we went skiing this year!). They have so many delicious and unique flavors and it's all locally produced, so you know you're getting an amazing product!

Chris from City Pop came to me last year needing to design some fun and unique labels for special occasions. The idea is that their customers will be able to buy tins of popcorn and pick the label for the occasion so that it makes a great gift! I absolutely loved the idea and was so excited to get started after we discussed the aesthetic and purpose.
